I have been continuing to work on my Bible class and enjoying reading the scriptures. I always find comfort, wisdom, and peace. Even though the words were written about 2000 years ago, they still speak to the problems of our current society. At the same time, the answer remains the same – hope, faith, love, and trust in God. Today I finished reading Paul’s letter that he wrote to the Philippians while he was in prison. It touched my heart as so much of it could have been speaking about our current condition. Here are some of the lines that struck me the most from Philippians chapter 4:
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I Found God today in His words that are encouraging, valid, and timely.
